Master Class: Having the right Safety LEVEL

In our autumn special it’s all about reliable solutions for overfill protection, empty notification as well as continuous level measurement of bulk goods and liquid media for the different production processes of the chemical sector.
Our Product Manager N. Oppenberger has been looking into the very specific requirements for measurement technology within the chemical industry. Together with Area Sales Manager Sub-Saharan Africa/France, Dr.-Eng. Valéry T. Kemtchou, he explains where certain technologies work and where they don’t.

What is the main focus of this webinar?

Level measurement devices installed within applications in the chemical industry are exposed to aggressive, adhesive, abrasive and corrosive media. Also the requirements can demand that very light bulk goods are to be detected and measured accurately.
In this live special you receive an insight into choosing the right measurement technology in conjunction with the aspect of process safety within chemical plants.
Our experts demonstrate particularly challenging applications giving specific recommendations of what sensor technology is best suited to solve them.

⚐ Robust and certified continuous, point level and interface measurement under demanding process conditions such as:
  • Aggressive material
  • Adhesive material
  • Very light material
  • High temperature
  • High safety standards

⚐ Examples of special solutions
⚐ Focus on certified measurement technology

↪ Case Studies of applications in different processes, such as:

  • Dosing & Mixing
  • Conveying & Storing
  • Material Handling
  • Cleaning & Filling
  • Sieving & Grinding
  • Packing & Loading

↪ Configuration of suitable sensors and installation recommendation tailored to the process conditions
↪ Possibilities & limitations of measurement technologies

Trade Show Achema 2022
ACHEMA is the world forum for chemical engineering, process engineering and biotechnology. Every three years the world’s leading show for the process industry attracts around 3,800 exhibitors from over 50 different countries to present new products, processes and services to 150,000 professionals from all over the world. The spectrum ranges from laboratory equipment, pumps and analytical devices to packaging machinery, boilers and stirrers through to safety technology, materials and software, thus covering the entire needs of the chemical, pharmaceutical and food production industries. The accompanying congress, featuring 800 scientific lectures and numerous guest and partner events, complements the wide range of themes of the exhibition. Focal topics are identified anew for every ACHEMA and feature topics that are currently trending in industry. In 2021, they are - The digital lab: In the lab data from every stage of research and production converge. Modularly designed and fully connected, the digital lab is a data mine for process design and quality control. - Product and process security: The interfaces between the real and the virtual world demand special attention in times of industry 4.0 and Internet of Things. - Modular and connected production: A fully connected value chains makes faster product cycles possible as well as small batches of specialized products. Based on the proven ACHEMA concept with its unique range of topics and the established interplay of exhibition and congress, the organizers at Dechema are currently working on new formats that will offer even more opportunities for discussion and networking. These include matchmaking tools as well as new interactive event formats. They are intended to stimulate discussion and provide additional impulses. The hall layout has also been slightly adapted to make optimum use of the structural changes on the exhibition grounds and to integrate the brand new Hall 12, located right in the center. Thus ACHEMA, which celebrates its centenary in 2020, offers the opportunity to truly experience the latest solutions and products for the process industry and to make global contacts.

Capacitance measurement technology at its new level. Say hello to our new Capacitance Level Switch You Asked, We Listened New features - more models - IO-Link technology The capacitive level limit switches are used as a full, demand or empty detector as well as for interface measurement (for example, oil / water or foam / liquid). It can also be used for leckage detection in double walled vessels, tanks and silos or in moldings and collecting ponds. The Capanivo® 7000 sensor is suitable for installations in all kinds of liquids, pastes, foam and slurry. The newly redesigned series now benefits from a new look, amazing new features, a range of new models and latest IO-Link technology on board. Very compact capacitive level detection for flexible use in a variety of applications The electrodes in the sensor form a capacitor. If the product comes into contact with the sensor, the capacitance changes and the electronics converts it into a switching signal.

Resistant RF level limit switch with dust-proof design by UWT
Capacitance measurement technology RFnivo® 3000 for conveying process optimization for a silicon metal manufacturer A silicon metal production facility in Iceland was looking for a suitable level measurement technology to coordinate the filling of sea containers with silicate rock. Due to the very abrasive material, a heavy-duty capacitive probe should be used. With the project planning of a proven point level switch from UWT with the innovative RF technology, a compatible solution, which is robust and delivers reliable results, could be found. Silicon metal is used in a variety of applications in the chemical industry, e.g. in the manufacture of siloxane and silicones, as well as in the production of high-strength aluminum alloys for the automotive industry. It is also often a primary raw material in the manufacture of photovoltaic modules. In the production processes of a manufacturer in Iceland, an above-average sustainability balance is strived for, which includes equipping its system with modern and efficient component technology. Therefore, the implementation of innovative
